If you’re as obsessed with ginger as I am, then you’re going to love this ginger tea recipe.
Ginger is highly anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. Next to turmeric, ginger is one of the most powerful foods of the 21st century.
The potency of ginger has been shown to combat cancer, even better than the leading chemotherapeutic drugs. It acts by inducing apoptosis (cell death) in cancerous cells, while leaving healthy cells alone (in comparison to chemotherapy, which kills cancerous cells and healthy cells).
This root contains a compound called gingerol, which is an incredibly potent antioxidant. It helps draw toxins out of the kidney area, and increases blood circulation in that area, helping to dissolve hard masses like kidney stones.
Ginger is a great way to also stimulate digestion and support the detoxification systems in our body. Its digestive actions help cleanse the build-up of waste and toxins in the colon, liver and other organs.
